I was adjusting the settings in After Effects to make the render time quicker. I've seen videos on how to adjust things, but nobody has directly answered this part that I've found.
Should I use more RAM for a lower amount of processor cores or a lower amount of RAM to use all my cores?
I have 24GB Ram and an i7 3.4ghz processor.
Any help would be great.
Nobody can answer this question because there isn't a single definitive answer to this. It all depends on the actual project settings, effects and features used and so on, Search the forum, this has been discussed hundreds of times every year.
